Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as required and only authorized individuals have access to the information you provide us.

What Choices Do I Have About Acoustic Collecting, Using, and Sharing My Information?

It is possible for you to use much of our site without giving us any personally identifiable information. Also, as mentioned above, there are ways to limit the information collected through technology–though some of our features won’t work if you decide to do this. For the safety of minors, we request that children under the age of 18 not fill out any personal information on our Web sites without first receiving the approval of a parent or guardian.
